How Much is My Home Worth?
It can be one of the most important questions you ask yourself. What if every house in your neighborhood was exactly the same? It would be very easy to figure out the value of your house by just seeing what other homes sold for on your block. There are housing developments in areas like Sacramento that are just like this where sometimes 400 or more homes are built to exactly the same plans. In San Francisco this just isn’t the case. I have seen two houses built side by side in the same year by the same builder that are completely different. One of the homes had been given a second story and was 700 square feet larger, the other hadn’t been touched in over 50 years and it showed. Homes in San Francisco are often 100 years old or more and have been renovated many times in totally different ways!
The point is, in San Francisco, every house is different, and comes with its own set of pluses and minuses. As your local realtors, we work to accentuate the positives and minimize the negatives. Every week Mike and I see dozens of houses, and it is only through this process over years and years of combined knowledge that we are able to have a clear picture of a house’s value, what improvements would increase its value, and how it will be received once it is on the market.
If you are considering selling your house knowing its value is one of the most important pieces of information you can have. Knowing your current house’s value is the foundation that allows you to make achievable plans. Once you have a good idea of what your house will sell for you can begin thinking about where to move and what you will be able to afford. Everyone has to live somewhere; good planning will help insure your next home will be one you love. There is nothing worse than expecting to walkaway from a sale with a certain amount of money only to find out the numbers you have been working with are all wrong.
Mike & Oliver personally come out to your home and give you a no obligation value analysis of your property. More importantly we can help you choose home improvements that fit your budget, and will maximize the amount your house sells for. We have the resources and connections to have any repairs done quickly and economically.
